Confirmed as Navajo Code Talker by the U.S. Marines, David Tsosie will go without his Congressional silver medal until his tribe has time to give it to him.

Tribal officials told The Farmington Daily-Times that no ceremony has been scheduled to award Tsosie, 79, his medal. The medal would already been in his hands had the tribe not "uninvited" him to an event where he would have received it.
